Huawei set to exit server, storage and networking business in the UK

The Register: Huawei is yanking a bunch of Enterprise product lines from the UK in the wake of a business review, admitting that the campaign waged by US President Donald Trump hasn’t helped its plight on this side of the pond.

The embattled Chinese giant confirmed it has told its channel partners and customers, some of whom told us that Huawei has called time on hardware including all networking switches, servers and storage gear.

A spokesperson for Huawei sent us a statement about the country-specific portfolio rationalisation and related redundancies.

“Our Enterprise Business is to focus its operations in the UK to deliver fewer products in a better way. Unfortunately this means a number of roles are no longer required, however, we hope to reposition colleagues who are affected elsewhere within the businesses.”

We understand that 20 roles are impacted out of the 50-strong Enterprise team.
